to north carolina to complete infantry training, and after that i went off to hawaii where i would be stationed for the next four years. this is where i also attended sniper school. so after attending sniper school, i quickly shipped off to iraq, and in iraq i didn't get to complete my tour because i was bitten on my right hand by a vicious enemy spider, and i actually suffered severe nerve damage, but i want to let everyone in this room know that the enemy will stop at nothing. they even train their spiders to bide us. [laughter] so i returned back home for trying to get my happened back, and this is where i became a sniper team leader in charge of five other marines. and we were out in mow salve i have -- mojave when my gunnery sergeant says we need five volunteers to go to afghanistan. and i said, what's the mission? he said we don't know yet, we just need five volunteers right now. i raised my hand and said, all right, i'm ready to go. so i ended up being signed to a small team of advisers, and we were going to act as advisers to the afghan national army. and this is different
